Isn't an interesting life?
I am Eman Sultan from Palestine, Iam very delighted to be a blogger in BBC learning English, and I hope that my writings will gain your interest and open the way for your comments.
I work as public Relations and Marketing Manager in Information Technology Center of Excellence at Palestine Polytechnic University which is located in Hebron City- Palestine
I live in an agricultural area which is not crowded with buildings and people, instead of that it is crowded with orchards of grapes and almond trees, surrounded by mountains that are filled by the oak and Pine trees, it has a moderate climate.
This region is called Albwaireh which includes a small number of houses that belong to my relatives.
Albowaireh region in the winter, a pond is mediated it to irrigat the surrounded fields of grapes, this pond is filled now with the rain water
In addition to the development of the residents of this region in various fields of life, particularly in education, but they also cling to their ancestral lands and continue to take care of it and planting its trees until the last breath in their life.
My grandfather who ages more than 95 years is standing beside a small fig tree planted by himself
And here he is watering a herb of “Al-Mardakoush” which is used for the treatment of some diseases
People in our area get used to eat and cook from their agricultural products and they prepare very delicious food as they inherited from their ancestors, sometimes they use firewood for cooking to add a tasty flavor to it
My grandmother is cooking apricot jam, it is very delicious and I like it very much
We also rely in our consumption from dairy products on our small cattle ranch; we make from its milk yoghurts, butter and cheese
For example, we produce yoghurt by filtering the milk in special bag
I like and enjoy this manner of life, along with availability of new technologies such as my VAIO, iphone that facilitate my life, and I believe that practicing the natural manner is healthier and more fun.
My favorite activity is to ride the horses and roam between grape fields and mountains, and visit relatives who all have kind hearts.
This mare is called Adab it is calm mare and I like to ride it
It is enough till now and I will tell you more about my life, my work,travels and our traditions in the coming blogs.
